Pell Grant Recipient Data by State, 1976-77 to 2012-13 [Spread]
This large Excel workbook contains Pell Grant recipient data by state, by institutional control, and by year, 1976-77 to 2012-13.
The data are compiled from annual Pell Grant End of Year reports prepared by the U.S. Department of Education. The recipient data included both the numbers of Pell Grant recipients and the Pell Grant dollars they received for each academic year. The Pell Grant recipient data are classified in two ways: first by location of institution, then by state of residence of the recipients. The difference between these two is net migration of Pell Grant recipients and dollars into or out of each state. 7/11/2014

College Participation Rates for Students from Low Income Families by State, AY 1993 to AY 2013 [Spread]
This Excel workbook contains state and national data used to calculate college participation rates for students from low income families for the years AY 1993 to AY 2013.

The data for each state includes: dependent Pell Grant recipients by state of residence, 4th to 9th grade enrollments in public schools, the percent of children approved for subsidized school lunches, the number of 4th to 9th graders in these low income families, and their rate of enrollment in college nine years later. These data show the number of children in these low income families in the K-12 pipeline headed toward higher education in each state. 7/11/2014
